HYDRAULIC VALVES REMAN/REBUILT
A forklift, otherwise known as a lift truck or industrial truck, is one of the most widely used materials handling equipments that helps in lifting and transporting heavy loads from one place to another. This valuable vehicle is being used by businesses all over the world for hauling pallets of materials or loads in almost any facility, like in warehouses, shipping yards, etc. Here's our complete list of brands. Forklift trucks are of several different types, some of which include, Pallet Jacks, Motorized Pallet Trucks, Walkie Motorized Pallet Trucks, High Lift Pallet Trucks, Rider Motorized Pallet Trucks, Front Rider Pallet Trucks, Order Picker Trucks, Rough Terrain Forklifts, Straddle Trucks, Sit down Counterbalanced Lift, and much more. Each of these models has their own functions to perform in a warehouse.
Forklift trucks are made of quite a lot of parts that are essential for performing the task at hand. Most of those parts are recognized based on their location and purpose. From a simple fan blade to a brake system, each and every component is important for the efficient functioning of a lift truck. Here are some common forklift parts and their significance:
The design and maintenance of a forklift’s tires must be in such a way that they offer high performance. In most cases, industrial forklifts are mainly designed for indoor operations; hence, such trucks are equipped with hard rubber tires that can be easily used on the concrete floor surfaces in factories. But unlike inflated tires, hard rubber tires do not provide enough suspension, and also these tires are not known to take in shock when used on rough surfaces. This is why forklift trucks with hard rubber tires should be used only in factories or warehouses made of smooth concrete landscapes.
If your forklift truck will be used outdoors, make sure that they are equipped with pneumatic tires, as they will absorb any shock on rough surfaces, and hence will be stable. You can also choose the material with which you want your forklift tires to be made of. In general, tires made of hard rubber are known to last longer when compared to those made of soft rubber; however, soft rubber tires are known to be high in friction, and hence are not slippery. Choose tires based on where your forklift trucks would operate and other relevant conditions. Solid Lift Parts contains all different models of tires for your forklift trucks, which you can have delivered anywhere in North America.
Brakes of forklift trucks must be efficient enough to slow down and bring to halt a completely loaded lift truck. Note that forklifts that contain brakes with the ability to stop empty trucks efficiently may not always perform the same way, with the same level of efficiency in the case of loaded trucks. The braking pressure applied by truck brakes should be quick, yet gradual, because sudden brakes can cause a fully loaded truck to overthrow or fall forward. Solid Lift Parts has the right brake parts for all makes and models of forklift trucks, right from brake drums to brake assembly to brake cables and brake shoes.
Every forklift truck should be equipped with safety bumpers in order to protect the operator from the events of sudden collisions. Nowadays, these collision detection systems come with inbuilt sensors that sense the energy when there in an impact and also generate an emergency stop system. These systems are also known to be economical, which is why most forklift users opt to equip their trucks with the same. Solid Lift Parts offers a wide variety of collision detection systems, including those equipped with optic sensors. Forklifts containing optical sensor collision detection systems are safer, as those systems will automatically detect any imminent collision and will cause the truck to stop.
A forklift’s mast, otherwise known as ‘upright’, is basically the vertical framework present at the front of the truck that helps is raising, tilting and lowering the vehicle’s forks. Forklift masts are of different types. The most commonly used type is referred to as Triple Stage Mast or Triplex: this type comprises of three sections, one outer rail and two inner ones. These masts are especially helpful in raising forks to lesser heights, for when there is a need to pass through doorways, etc. The other types are referred to as Duplex or Two Stage Mast, and Quad Stage Mast or Quad. Solid Lift Parts offers all these types of forklift masts to suit your different needs and operations.
All forklift trucks should be equipped with parts that send out warning signals. This is extremely important
because the signals will alert pedestrians about an approaching forklift truck and thus will prevent pedestrian
collisions. Flashing lights serve as one such warning signal. Horn is another piece of equipment that can be used
to alert passersby. These can be helpful specifically in areas like corners, doorways, pedestrian crossings,
And to be cautious in conditions or environments with low lights, forklift trucks have to be equipped with head lights. The operator should have good visibility of the pathways and obstacles before the vehicle in order to be safe during transportation, especially in factories or warehouses with poor lighting. This can be achieved by equipping lift trucks with best quality head lights. All of these warning signal parts are available with Solid Lift Parts to cater your forklift safety requirements. Truck Frame This is the base of the lift truck. All prime components of a truck get attached to the truck frame, including the mast, counterweight, power source, overhead guard and tires.
